I know what everyone would say, you should have only traded with trusted player. Well i traded with a guildie so if guildies are not trustable anymore, then i give up.
Advice about risky trading with guildies and non guildies.
Check their rank in the guild and how long they have been in there.
We had a scammer join who was rank 8, he scammed someone in the guild. Now we no longer buy PAL/PWL from newbies who haven't been in the guild for many months or those who are ranked 6-9.
I'm not gonna say don't try and get Pal/PWL because f***, it's not like there are many placeholders these days on the tier, except Y's and beyond that.
Unless you can afford to get your own Pal/pwl mystery boxes or you are getting it from a very close friend or family who plays, I'd avoid it, it's just too risky. I know it sucks because I'm also heavily under enchanted since these new Pal/PWL boxes showed up.
